      Rider, the Merkur futur. Why does it give a better shave?
      Right. Here goes. This is really personal and everyone is different. Remember I got both my and Tainted's razors 2nd hand, and BeePs is 2nd hand too. All because the original owners didn't like them.
      I found that sharper blades were far more comfortable than blades other people found comfortable. The feather for example some people just felt raw after. I never did, I thought they were ace!
      Personnas on the other hand I felt were awful, but others find them good.

      I quickly realised that my EJ needed an aggressive blade to feel comfortable. A mild or medium just didn't work.

      So I started thinking I need something aggressive to get through my beard comfortably. Hence the futur, it's more aggressive than the EJ, so I can get the same great shave from a more forgiving blade.

      That's what I mean when I say better, close and comfortable.
      Of course I got that with the EJ, but needed a feather and it was too blunt for a second shave.

      Every face is different. It's about finding the combo that works for you.
      Sensitive skin might need a gentle razor and gentle blades. Tough old leathery skin like mine prefers an aggressive razor.
      Thanks for the review mate, I'll bare that in consideration. I'll see how I get on with the EJ and will try a few more blades before I think about getting a Merkur, but with you and Tainted really enjoying the shave with one I'm so tempted to try it myself lol.

      Be careful searching for those blades on Amazon, I just did it and the first result was a ummmmm rubber item that women enjoy (I'm at work which isn't helpful either)

      Cheapest I've seen so far:

      If you buy 100 of them I'll gladly buy half of them from you and pay for you to send them to me as well

      • 4th shave completed and im definatly getting better, hardly any burny face of fire with the alum block and a shave so close on my neck i woudln't have thought it possible.

        got my brothers birthday coming up, as rider has given me the idea i might grab him a starter set for it

        thoroughly satisfyed. 4 shaves with the derby going to try a green astra now and see the difference

        Oh the badger brush that i linked a few days ago is actually really good now it has worn in a little, its very soft and pretty good for a face lather in my humble opinion

        • I put in an ASTRA green last night, best shave I have had so far so I have convinced the mrs to buy 100 of them lol.

          I still like the Supermax Super Platinums but the 1st shave is a bit rough, strangely they get better after that.

          Glad it's going well zeameth, I bet you will love the astras.

              Oh dear, I need to wake up. Sorry for the crap link mate. Based on the reviews I've read, people still prefer the feathers though.


              If I buy 100 and don't like them, it's only cost me a tenner and I have 99 razor blades left over to share amongst my D/E friends

                    • Had a few beers the other night... Started hovering around Ebay looking at shaving stuff, as you do. Ended up clicking buy on a friggin shavette that I know I'm not going to use after the first time. Damnit all to hell. I blame Rider.

                      I haven't tried the blacks as yet but wouldn't mind some. I have a few of the Yellow's that Cruciate sent me if you'd like me to send you some of those?

                      I've also got 90 Derby's (give or take) and a few other various kinds if anyone fancies some?

                          My Proraso only showed up today, along with a 6870

                          I'll give it a whirl tomorrow to see what all the fuss is about. Glad to hear you're getting along well with it!

                            Yeah my soap of choice is the Proraso green ..leaves a nice tingle after a good shave.... but the red is totally different... got home at 4 and it was waiting for me ...so thought why not 10 mins later lol all lathered up... leave a nice clean smell no tingle but noticeably cool ...can see me using both alternately... the 6870 is that a New AMD Razor lol...

                            • Remember folks, if you buy at the shaving shack --- and its free delivery on blades BTW --- and spend over 10, you get to choose a free gift. One of which is 10 Feathers. Which would normally cost about 3.50.

                              WIN!!!

                              Oh and for those Gillette blacks - Connaught Shaving have them, and Connaught are really good.

                                Good find ..used to use them for blades all the time but..

                                "Due to recent postage increases we no longer offer free UK shipping on blade only orders."

                                which is a shame as they used to be great always just that bit cheaper than everywhere else....
